Like a Libation

The cup of salvation
pouring love into us
changing us from the inside
washing over us

Filling our empty hearts
replacing the world
making us wholly new
to walk in your presence

Children of the savior
sheep of us flock
pouring out a blessing
to the ends of the earth

Pouring out our gifts
life a libation
offering hope to the world
the joy of our salvation

“I am happy to do your will, O my God.”
Your teachings are deep within me.
I will announce the good news of righteousness
among those assembled for worship.
I will not close my lips. You know that, O LORD.”
